PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Current day reality collides with popular youth fiction. Aurora Learning Library presents a musical adaptation of Grace for President based on the book by Kelly DiPucchio. The story centers on plucky Grace Campbell, a third-grader frustrated by the lack of female faces in the White House. Grace inspires a school election and all is well until the most popular boy runs against her. Through the campaign grind, Grace and her classmates discover what it takes to be the best candidate and find fun in the wonderful world of politics. With performances literally days away from an election with the first female presidential nominee in US history, it ties directly into current events with a civics lesson so fun the students won’t realize how much they are learning.
